ArtsFiesta! features live authentic mariachi music and traditional Mexican dancing.

Numerous folkloric dance will be performed by Grupo Latino Americano, Grupo Libertad and Grupo Monett. Bi-lingual storytelling for children and a display of original art from Tlaquepaque will be at the Park Central Branch Library.

ArtsFiesta! kicks off a weekend of center-city events that also includes the First Friday Art Walk downtown and the 33rd annual Artsfest on Historic Walnut Street.
